ISLAMABAD (92 News) – An accountability court has summoned Asif Ali Zaradri on February 12 in Thatta Water Supply reference on Monday. Judge Azeem Khan also issued the notices to Ashfaq Laghari and naudero house incharge Nadeem Bhutto. The court summoned Zardari on February 12.

An accountability court adjourned hearing into money laundering case against Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur and other accused, till February 11. The hearing was presided over by Judge Muhammad Azam Khan. Faryal Talpur, Abdul Ghani Majeed and other accused appeared before court, while Zardari, skipped today’s court appearance, owing to his health issues. Zardari’s counsel Farooq H Naek submitted plea in the court seeking today’s exemption from the court appearance. “My client is not well and under treatment in Karachi,” Farooq H Naek said in his plea on behalf of Asif Ali Zardari. However, the court also directed the NAB for presenting Anwar Majeed before court through air ambulance. The defence counsel complained about non-provision of copies of the supplementary reference. To this, the court ordered the NAB prosecutor to provide copies of the supplementary reference to the accused. The court adjourned further hearing into the case till February 11.
